LOOKING BACK TO LOOK FORWARD

I’ve always been inspired by vintage looks, clothes, photography, jewelry, film and style. But since my wedding plans began I’ve been eating it up like a whip cream sundae! I found these tasty shots on Flickr that scream “effortless chic.” The site offers endless images of inspiration. Today these photos have me feeling very Great Gatsby and Newport, RI old money glam.

Below, Mia Farrow as Daisy Buchanan and Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby in the 1974 film The Great Gatsby, based on the classic 1924 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Below, Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, RI where the 1974 film was shot. If ever in Newport, take a tour of the mansions, Rosecliff is included. It’s beautiful.

“I know. I’ve been everywhere and seen everything and done everything…Sophisticated – God, I’m sophisticated.” – Daisy
